The Beginnings of a Wedding Dress Heirloom

A Wedding Dress Story by Sammie E I was married to my sweetheart, Ian, on July 26, 2013 in Newberg, Oregon. One of the many blessings surrounding our wedding story was Ian’s mother, Jane, graciously making my wedding gown. We picked out everything she needed together at Fabric Depot in Portland, Oregon. Her creation was absolutely breathtaking, as well as practical and sentimental. My buttons were roses, a nod to my family’s heritage. The wedding dress bustled in such a way that the back looked smooth (instead of pilled up). The...

A Wedding Dress Designed by Veluz

A Wedding Dress Story by Edelwisa My wedding dress was custom-made by a famous Filipino designer, Veluz. She resides in the Philippines and she is very known for the intricate details of her gown.

Getting Her Wedding Dress Preserved 50 Years After the Wedding

A Wedding Dress Story by June Wood My wedding dress, with silk organza, was purchased in 1963 from a lovely store called Rusan’s in downtown Spokane, Washington.  I believe it was the second wedding dress I tried on, and I felt it was perfect for me.  My dear mother, who was with me, thought so too. I was the only one to wear my gown.  Our daughter (we also have three sons), married 19 years now, purchased her own wedding dress.  At that time, however, I thought I would replace the veil for my headpiece/tiara with a lovely new...
